I posted a pic that showed my ring in it when I changed my relationship status on FB, and honestly, looking back I’m embarrassed by it and really wish I hadn’t — it just makes me feel so materialistic and superficial. I’d delete it, but it has so many sweet comments from friends that I don’t want to see those go.

I was worried about coming off as materialistic when I first got engaged. But, I do keep in touch with good friends and family who live far away on FB and I was pleasantly surprised when I did post photos and they reached out to congratulate me & were glad I was putting things on Facebook so that they could be somewhat included.
It did create a monster though, not gonna lie, about 7 months into my engagement my e-ring started making it into all my pics. Holding a coffee cup, on a book, etc.

We never announced our engagement on social media. We’ve been engaged for 7 months and most people know by now because it has been spotted from a distance in a couple of our pictures on fb and instagram but we never did the whole announcement thing. I told all my close friends and family in person, and I’m sure they told people as well but I didn’t feel like the whole world needed to know about it.

I wasn’t going to post a photo (just changed my status to engaged), and he got the ring after we’d been engaged for a month or two, but for whatever reason the week he bought the ring my aunts started a group chat with family members and started bombarding it with questions about the ring–“When is she gonna post the ring?” “WHERE IS IT” so I uploaded a photo. It’s the one I use as my profile picture here. I don’t take a ton of pictures of it, I’ve got that one and another from a day that the color looked really bright and I had my camera out.

I am not engaged, but I likely won’t post a ring selfie on Facebook. I only have 64 followers on Instagram and they are all friends, so I will probably post a posed picture. I don’t care to post my ring all over social media because I don’t want judgment from anyone.

we’re only on FB. However I didn’t want our close family and friends to find out via social media. We’re both private and use FB for fun. We took a week after he proposed to call, visit, etc and announce it in person. Everyone kept asking why we Weren’t posting it! But we just thought it was too special of news to share that way.
After a week my honey picked out some pics and we made a little collage. He announced he asked me to marry him and how he can’t wait to make more memories like these. (We are avid fisherman/woman). He then used the hashtag HelpMeBabyJesus. Haha
The pic of me by myself was planned for months! I couldn’t wait to take a pic of my ring AND a fish. LOL i love that pic.

I didn’t post a ring pic, because for me it wasn’t about the ring. I DIY’d a little sign, set up the tripod and took a pic of us holding each end.

I think ring pics are tacky but I recognize that I am in the minority on this.

This is what I posted–I wanted to do a picture of us, but they all turned out regretably badly, so ring it was!

According to FB my fiance and I aren’t even in relationships, so I won’t be posting any ring pics or making any announcements on there in the future. Hell we’re not even friends on FB. I realize that’s unusual, though.
